A Feathered Houzz
We at The Feather Place have recently discovered a fabulous new site called Houzz! Houzz.com is an online platform that brings together users, interior designers and retailers under one roof, and allows access to the designs featured on the site. Through browsing the seemingly infinite gorgeous images, stories, and tips we have found some incredible feathered designs, and designers we just had to share with you.
Utilize this fab site to revamp your space with feathered decor! Whether it be a soft ostrich statement lamp, a hand made juju hat with coque feathers, or some natural quills and pheasant tails, adding touches of feathers will bring new life to your home.
Feather your Houzz this Spring with feathers from The Feather Place!

London, Milan and Paris Runway Feather Trends 2015
Time and time again feathers have adorned the runways from New York to Milan. This year was no different with delicate ostrich feathers, unique pheasant feathers, and edgy stripped coque tails gracing the runways in London, Milan and Paris. Once again we were wowed by Alexander McQueen’s looks, not to mention Rodarte’s sultry feathered gowns. Our favorite? Celine’s turkey feather fringed dress was everything we love about feathered fashion- edgy, feminine, inventive and chic. Her casual styling is what’s now – casual and fun with a nod to elegance and high-fashion. Take a peek at some other noteworthy feather trends from the runways in London, Milan and Paris and find your favorite ❤

UK-BASED MARCELA TRŠOVÁ FINDS FREEDOM IN FLIGHT
This week we would like to introduce you to artwork by UK-based artist Marcela Tršová. Interested in the connections and differences between our inner and outer experiences, Tršová creates artworks that are flush with symbolism – web gallery. Her 2011 work titled “Messengers” hopes to capture the freedom inherent in the flight of our feathered friends. Tršová used crow feathers, copper wires and magpie feathers to create magnificent avian structures that capture the essence of flight.
“Flight has always represented freedom from the physical restrictions of earthbound life and the ascent of the soul to the goods [sic] either through a mystical experience or through death.”
“Birds share something of the same symbolic meaning, but because they come from the skies they can also assume the role of messengers from higher powers[…], whether for good or ill.”- Marcela Tršová
